The three engines (#1, 3 & 4) failure constitutes the main cause.
Contributory factors:
En route bad weather and pilot visual entry into an embedded thunderstorm.
Unserviceability or sudden failure of weather radar.
Accumulation of ice led to the blockage of the engines air intake assembly.
The nature of the impact area was forest, this caused the detachment of the aircraft parts. The running engine # 2 caused the fire.
